There has been a bug introduced in the latest kernel update 2.6.24-11
that pervents brightness control working for Lenovo Thinkpads T/R/X 61
.. basically any new Thinkpad. Bug could use some fixing as it is a
major one, just introduced. Kernel 2.6.24-10 works perfrectly fine.

Bug can be found here:
